Query: Spaniards in the German-Soviet War 1942 (seeking research assistance and advice)

Dear Colleagues:

I am writing a book on Spaniards in the USSR who were repatriated during World War II and the Cold War.

On 22 August 1942,  a small group of Spanish youth and their teacher was captured by the Wehrmacht in the Caucasus. They returned to Spain via Berlin in December 1942.    I am seeking help with finding material in German archives.  (I read and speak German.). I need to know which archives to consult and which finding aids to use.
